Who I Am
Shrouded by sheets strung between the backs of chairs, I started telling stories by torchlight to my little sister. Through teenage scrawlings across an online blog and a first class creative writing degree and postgrad, playing with words is not a choice for me: it’s a compulsion.
This is why I spin my living from words: from love not obligation.
Other Things I Love
Living other people’s stories: from stage, from screen and from the page
Torn herbs and citrus spark; the sweet-hot rush of layering spices on mince; the blip of plum tomatoes collapsing in to sauce; cooking, creating and trying to tease basic ingredients into a sum so much greater than it’s parts
The catch and pull of muscles pulled taut in a yoga pose
Exploring new places, places that are crumbling, wild or any other beautiful
